About Windows 10 Safe Mode

Windows 10 Safe Mode is a baseline system state that uses only the core set of files and drivers. This feature is useful enough to troubleshoot and troubleshoot your computer. As a situational example, the following can be cited: the computer constantly crashes and shows system errors. You load it in safe mode, there are no more crashes and errors, in which case you will already be sure that the failure is not caused by the default settings and not the base drivers.

If your computer won't boot, you can also go to Safe Mode and determine the source of the problem. Thus, we can say that Safe Mode in Windows 10 is one of the steps to restore your computer to health.
